How many of you out there just want to see this episode already?! Well, we can’t, but here are some more spoilers from writer/director Ben Edlund to tide us over until tonight.

  • The story is told from Cas’s perspective, and we will be going to Heaven, and to Hell.
  • This episode sets in motion the choices Cas is going to have to make in the last 3 episodes of the season.
  • Cas will be torn between staying in an angelic state and adopting a human form. Says Edlund:

“I think that’s an inventive and possible thing. He’s essentially… a perfect machine that has been infected with human qualities. Or you could say he was once a ruthless mechanism and he’s been elevated by human qualities. He’s a hybrid now. That creates as much conflict as it does insight.”

  • Edlund does not see Cas as evil, just confused:

“But when it comes to Cas’ impact on the boys and his universe… He’s kind of like a screwed up good guy. One might say he’s misguided. We’ll see. It’s more complicated. I like that.”

We’ll see just how big of a mess Cas has gotten himself into tonight!
